STATE LAW REQUIRES SEPARATE IRRIGATION METERS - DON' T FORGET THE BACKFLOW DEVICE
Residential customers needing a ¾” irrigation service now have two options:
The customer can elect to have a separate tap and a separate line run to each meter box. In this case, the standard connection charges and capacity fees will be assessed. This option may be necessary if the existing domestic meter is in a driveway or there is some other circumstance that prevents splitting off the single service line. If customers need more than a ¾" irrigation service, they may purchase larger services for added capacity. Services larger than ¾" will be tapped on the main with standard connection and system development fees. Backflow prevention device is typically installed beside the house. Contact zoning at 311 for setback rules.
Single Service Line $1,094 $0 $1,094
Dedicated Service Line $2,443 $610 $3,053
All Irrigation meter customers with approved Smart Irrigation technology qualify to keep all water usage charges at Tier 3.
